A couple of days ago, OnePlus 8 Pro users across the globe started seeing Netflix videos in SD (Standard Definition) even though the flagship phone unsurprisingly supports HD playback. Users noticed that the issue happened after the new OxygenOS 10.5.5 update. The update reportedly brought the Widevine L1 support down to L3, rendering the phone unable to play HD content on apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

OnePlus disables the color filter camera

In other news, After all the controversy caused by the color filter camera of the OnePlus 8 Pro, since the feature made it possible to see through some plastic and clothes, the Chinese manufacturer ended up making a decision and has begun to suspend the feature temporarily.

OnePlus initially claimed that it would disable this functionality on HydrogenOS (the Chinese version of its ROM) pending a definitive solution. The brand insisted that it would not disable it on the international OxygenOS version. However, the company is now rolling out a new software update of the OnePlus 8 Pro devices globally. The new update solely disables the Photochrome filter from the smartphone.
